In each box, have students write the definition for text structure and some signal words. 

In the rounded box, students will draw and label an organizer. Simply glue the pages you need in a staggered format. 

Instructions for Completing the Organizer: 

1) Print the cover and information pages onto colored paper. 2) Cut out rectangles. 

3) Begin with the bottom page in the stack. Turn the page on its back and place a thin line of glue across the top of the page only. Glue it towards the bottom of the organizer notebook or lap book. 

4) On the back of next page, place a thin line of glue along the top. 

5) Glue this page directly onto the organizer page moving it up approximately onefourth of an inch higher than the first page. 

6) Continue to add pages until all are glued down. 7) The pages should lift up so that students can read the information.
